My name is Willem, I am an animator based in Nijmegen in the Netherlands. As an animator I am always busy with visualising stories. Because animation is easy to distribute, I can share my stories with a wide audience.
Animation is a great medium for me to inform people about all kinds of different topics. I can make difficult and heavy loaded themes a little bit lighter by explaining them with animation.
I work a lot with stop motion and 2D frame by frame animation. I also like to combine these techniques with each other. I like to have an ‘analog feeling’ in my animations. Because I like to make work for children, my work can often be recognized by a happy use of color.
In 2017 I graduated from from AKV St. Joost in Breda with a bachelor degree in animation. In 2020 I graduated from the Master Institute of Visual Cultures in Den Bosch with a master degree in animation.
